Why settle for just one dessert when you can have two? This decadent treat combines all the delicious fall flavors of butternut squash pie with the incredible creamy texture of cheesecake to create an exciting new dish you won’t be able to get enough of. And since this recipe is actually on the healthy side, you can even treat yourself to a second piece without feeling guilty!
To keep the calories low without losing flavor in this cheesecake, I’ve swapped all the usual ingredients for their lighter counterparts. Low-fat cream cheese in place of full-fat, non-fat Greek yogurt in place of heavy cream and one egg white in place of one whole egg. These small changes might not seem like much but they make a huge difference when calculating the fat and sugar quantities of each slice. The sugar in the filling and butter in the crust have been kept to an absolute minimum, but they’re both 100% necessary to create a tasty cheesecake you and your family will love.
If you’re not really into healthy desserts, you’ve got to try this one! I swear, you’ll be hooked after the first bite and will never believe what you’re eating is actually healthy. The cheesecake texture is so velvet-like and the flavors are so sweet and rich that you’ll never go back to making full-fat desserts ever again.
